Why is this book so good?

For the author, Lisa MarcAurele, starting the low-carbohydrate lifestyle was a personal journey.

When her Grave’s disease (a thyroid autoimmune disorder) caused her to gain weight, she struggled to find recipes that worked for her.

After counting calories and cutting fat didn’t work, she turned to the low-carb diet.

She struggled to find recipes, so she started modifying her favorite meals to this lifestyle and eventually started blogging about her recipes.

In 2010, she started her first recipe blog.

Now, Lisa’s recipes have also been featured on Parade.com, TODAY.com, Well+Good, Delish, and Men’s Health.

What else is in the book?

Some of the recipes include:

  • Quick breakfast recipes to start the day off right, such as Almond Flour Pancakes, Spinach-Tomato- Avocado Omelets, Bagel Thins, and Coconut Flour Waffles.
  • Soups and salads that make perfect lunches, including Chicken Zoodle Soup, Salmon-Cucumber Salad, Roasted Brussels with Bacon Soup, and Spinach-Bacon Salad.
  • Effortless appetizers, snacks, and beverages to stay keto-friendly all day, like Avocado Deviled Eggs, Seasoned Tortilla Chips, Keto Coffee, and Strawberry Lemonade.

Keto Crustless Cheesecake with only 5 Ingredients!

You are not going to believe how easy and foolproof this low carb cheesecake recipe is!  Basically you are going to dump the ingredients into a blender, pour into a pan, and bake!

No water baths, no fussy picky steps.  No crazy amount of carbs added due to the crust.  Completely easy and nut-free, sugar-free, gluten-free.

Ahhh, but what about the taste?

Amazing!  This crustless cheesecake totally reminded me of the delicious not too sweet cheesecakes my Mom made when I was growing up called Kaese Kuchen.  They were made with dry cottage cheese and a minimal amount of sugar.

My Mom would always make the same basic cheesecake bottom and then the sweetness would come from a beautiful topping of berry sauces or cooked apples or plums.  These crust free cheesecakes were so delicious!

This keto crustless cheesecake from Lisa MarcAurele’s book is the closest I’ve come to tasting that sort of cheesecake again.  I absolutely loved it’s simplicity and it was plenty sweet enough for me!

What will you need to make this crustless cheesecake?

That is it, honestly.  Other than if you want to garnish it.  It tastes really good all on it’s own too!

Tips, Tricks and Hacks to Make Keto Crust Free Cheesecake

  • Put the ingredients out on the counter and set the timer for an hour while you go off and do other things.  This will bring the ingredients to room temperature for easier blending.
  • You could make this in muffin tins.  I would check after 15 minutes as muffins will cook faster.
  • This crustless cheesecake is the perfect vessel for a strawberry sauce like this one.
  • You can also top it with fresh berries and whipped cream
  • The cookbook says that it serves 4.  I thought 1/8 of the cheesecake was plenty, especially if topped with fruit and/or whipped cream
  • Are you doing Relaxed Carnivore?  Sometimes you just need a sweet something for a special occasion and this basic recipe is pretty carnivore friendly.  I know carnivores generally don’t use sweetener but we are not talking a whole lot here in the grand scheme of things.
  • The recipe calls for an 8 inch pie plate which I do not have, I only have 9 inch plates.  It turned out fine but was definitely ready at 25 minutes, so watch for that cooking time.

1 thought on “Easy Keto Crustless Cheesecake 5 Ingredients!”

  1. Made this in muffin tins tonight for mini cheesecakes for Thanksgiving tomorrow. They looked beautiful coming out of the oven. Within 5 minutes of cooling on my counter, they collapsed internally on themselves and now look like those strawberry shortcake spongecake cups that they sell at my local grocery store, except with taller edges. They are also very fluffy and eggy looking. I have them cooling in my fridge and will likely have to fill them with something. The idea of strawberries and whipped cream to make them into shortcakes sounds good, but we will see if that tastes okay tomorrow. Luckily it’s just me and my husband and kids. Honestly, I look at this as a fail, since we prefer dense and creamy cheesecakes, not fluffy. I’m hoping they don’t taste as eggy as they look.
